as a presidential candidate, let alone president of the united states, stick your foot into something that you know nothing about. mitt romney knows nothing about what is happening on the ground. he even said in his statement from what i've read in reports and from what i hear is happening. he doesn't know what's happening. as we have seen, the whole situation has changed within the last 24 hours. heck, since the morning papers came out. now we have the news that the chinese officials say that they'll let mr. chen and his family come to the united states if he gets a fellowship. and the word has come out that an american university has offered him a fellowship. >> it really highlights how difficult it would be for mitt romney to go after president obama on foreign policy. if you remember four years ago, that was one of the main issues on which john mccain had then senator obama, his lack of experience on foreign policy. now of course, he has this foundation being on the path to ending not just the war in iraq but the war in afghanistan. the death of osama bin laden. whether he spiked the ball or no

been studied extensively. there is no problem in the united states in terms of in person voting fraud. it was studied in ohio. it was studied in kansas. the estimates are that these voter i.d. laws could disen franchise as much as 20 million voters and why you ask shouldn't people have a driver's license or some other photo i.d.? because studies have shown in many places, particularly in rural areas, you have dmvs or other state offices open five hours a week, located as many 150 miles away from a particular residence which plaxz it almost impossible particularly for low income people to get that. again, this has been studied to death. there is no and seu could not point to a single piece of evidence that says there is an in-person voting fraud in the country that justifies the voter i.d. laws. it is a thinly veiled attempt to disen franchise people and the fact you compare to efforts by the president to appeal to those constituents and vote for him is absurd. >> julian epstein, professor michael eric dyson and s.e., i am sorry we have run out of time. thank you for your wisdom on the
